The Amount of the Monthly Instalment


The sum of the monthly instalments depends on several factors:

  • The amount of the interest rate and fluctuations thereof - the lower the interest rate, the lower the monthly instalment;
  • Period of the loan — the longer the term, the lower the monthly instalment.

Schedules of loan repayment

Schedules of loan repayment

Annuity payments: during the validity term of the loan agreement payments of the principal sum and interest are separated into as equal payments as possible. Amount of the monthly instalment will be constant in the respective period of the interest rate change.

Linear payments: payment of the principal sum remains constant during the validity term of the loan, but interest is calculated from the unpaid part of the loan.

The Interest Rate of the Loan


Variable interest rate will be applied to your loan, consisting of:

  1. Base interest rate - variable part of the interest rate. You will be able to choose either  a short-term or a long-term interest rate.
    • Short-term interest rate is determined for 3, 6, 12 months.  It is usually lower than a fixed rate, but it fluctuates depending on the market situation (every 3, 6 or 12 months respectively). It will be more difficult for you to plan your expenses, but in the case of a favourable market situation you might be the winner.
    • Long-term interest rate is determined for a period of 2 to 5 years; usually it is higher than the variable rate, but remains constant for a longer period of time. Thus you can reduce your risk, because the interest rate cannot change frequently.
